The media likes to talk a lot about Paul Manafort and Mike Flynn not registering as lobbyists with FARA but they don’t seem to concerned about what John Kerry is up to lately. Kerry has been meeting with the Iranians to undermine President Trump and save Obama’s disastrous deal.
From Washington Free Beacon:
Former Secretary of State John Kerry disclosed that he has been conducting rogue diplomacy with top Iranian officials to salvage the landmark nuclear deal and push the Islamic Republic to negotiate its contested missile program, according to recent remarks.
Kerry, in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt to promote his new book, said that he has met with Iranian Former Minister Javad Zarif—the former secretary’s onetime negotiating partner—three or four times in recent months behind the Trump administration’s back.
“I think I’ve seen him three or four times,” Kerry said, adding that he has been conducting sensitive diplomacy without the current administration’s authorization. Kerry said he has criticized the current administration in these discussions, chiding it for not pursuing negotiations from Iran, despite the country’s fevered rhetoric about the U.S. president.
Here’s a pic from back in May.
On what planet is this OK?
John Kerry is not part of the government anymore. He’s a civilian. He has no business negotiating with Iranian leaders on anything in any capacity.
Rush Limbaugh has been all over this story.
Kerry and the Obama team as a whole seems to really be having a hard time with the fact that Trump is completely dismantling everything Obama did. You know that it’s driving them crazy to watch Trump fix all the problems Obama left behind. Trump got us out of the Iran Deal because it was a bad deal. The right thing to do if you’re John Kerry is to respect the democratic process and try to get someone elected instead of him next time. He can’t do that. He’s got to undermine Trump and undermine the country to try and save face.
